Mark Smith explains SAP's HANA, PaaS and predictive analytics moves

Date: May 18, 2012

HANA, SAP's in-memory database system was a big topic of conversation this week at SapphireNOW, the SAP user conference.

Just one year since it was first released, SAP HANA now counts 353 customers, 145 implementations, more than 56,500 end users and seven hardware partners. At the conference, SAP revealed a slew of new in-memory applications it plans to release, opened the platform up to developers for free and released a new version of BusinessOne, its midmarket ERP package, that runs on HANA.

It also announced integration with R, the programming language for big data sets. News Director Barney Beal sat down with Mark Smith, CEO of Ventana research to get his take on SAP's plans for predictive analytics, HANA in the cloud and its new PaaS offering, NetWeaver Cloud.
